Let’s narrow it down a little bit for you. Of all the theatre facilities in Mumbai, which is the one place that you would hope to find the best shows at? And you guessed it right- Prithvi theatre, it is. It was built sometime during the year 1978 (yes, it is that old!) as an auxiliary to a Larger foundation- Prithviraj Kapoor Memorial Trust and Research Foundation.

Staging professional theatres can be a costly affair as a result of which the tickets tend to come at very high price. The rates are reasonably pocket-friendly here, so that you do not have to shell out much in order to catch a great show, and yes, students, you won’t have to save up much to catch a show here either.  This is a great place to go to if you wish to watch plays in various languages like Hindi, Gujarati, Marathi, English etc.
